Cravebox - Cooking Light

Cooking Light Cravebox

This is a monthly subscription box from Cravebox for $13 including shipping.  This one featured Cooking Light and included the following products:
  1. McCormick - Perfect Pinch Salt Free Garlic & Herb Seasoning
  2. Nectresse - no calorie sweetener from the makers of Splenda
  3. Tully's French Roast Coffee
  4. Dole - Fruit Crisp in Apple Pear, Apple Cinnamon & Peach
  5. Torani - add a splash to your brewed coffee
  6. Cooking Light - magazine
  7. Magnet from Cooking Light - measurement conversion 
  8. Recipes - McCormick Garlic & Herb Chicken & Tully's Coffee Banana Bread
Hubby tried the Torani and thought it was good, but prefers regular coffee flavors, not the fancy ones.  I was happy to see that it wasn't full of sugar and uses a sugar free substitute.  The Tully's French Roast Coffee came in handy since our Keurig decided to stop working and hubby had to use a french press until the new Keurig arrived. I tried the Fruit Crisp in Apple Cinnamon and it was a nice quick treat, but I will not purchase again since the apples are from China.  Really, China?  We have plenty of apples here in the states, so I am very sad that Dole decided to import apples.  Shame on Dole! I tried the Nectresse in my tea and it made me nauseous, so I will not be using it again.  I rarely feel nauseous, so that product really disagreed with me!  Hubby didn't like the taste either.  We will stick with a heathy option, Stevia.  I love the magnet, I frequently find the need to convert cooking measurements, so that will come in handy.  I'm always looking for ways to spice up chicken since we eat mostly chicken to keep our cholesterol levels low.  So we will be trying out the McCormick spice soon.  We don't cook without spices!  I looked into the digital magazine subscription, but since it required that you cancel after your trial, I passed.  So there you have it, our latest shipment from Cravebox.  This was a fun box of samples to try out.  If you want a really inexpensive monthly sample box, this is one to try.  What monthly subscription services do you love, comment below!
